Cold Process Soap: Coat your mold with cooking spray or line with plastic. Wait 24 hours after pouring into mold by turning the mold over onto a clean surface. Gently push the back of the mold until the soap begins to release, then pull the soap out of the mold with a gloved hand. Allow your soap to cure for 4-8 weeks. Note that some Cold Process soap recipes may require a week to harden enough to remove from the mold. If this is the case with your recipe, we recommend adding sodium lactate to your recipe to assist with creating a harder bar quicker. Placing the soap in the mold for several hours to enhance release while frozon.
Melt & Pour Soap: Pour the melted soap at a temperature no hotter than 135ºF into the mold. Allow to cool until the soap has hardened. Remove the soap from the mold and wrap the soap immediately after unmolding. For easier unmolding, place into freezer for 30 minutes, and then immerse bottom of the mold in hot water for a few moments. Do not use cooking spray to coat mold before pouring in your soap mixture.
Lotion Bars: Pour your melted lotion bar mixture into the mold cavities at a temperature no hotter than 135ºF. Then allow the mixture to solidify. After your mixture has solidified, flip the mold over onto a clean surface. Gently push the back of the mold until the lotion bar begins to release then pull the bar out of mold.
Care: Wash in warm, sudsy water. Avoid using a dishwasher as it can lead to your molds warping or make them brittle.
